Summary: A strategy for how Norwegian applied organizations should prepare for the upcoming EarthCARE and Sentinel 5 precursor satellite missions is discussed, and long- and short-term plans are provided. The satellites and their potential products are discussed in terms of possible applications by NILU and met.no and data are considered for operational use in (a) reporting of climate gases, aerosols, ozone and UV to Klif, (b) EMEP reporting on aerosol and acidification/eutrophication, (c) chemical weather forecasting, (d) numerical weather forecasting and (e) research on Cloud-Aerosol-Radiation interaction.
